Two more arrests have been made following a pro-police rally that got out of control August 8 in Fort Collins.

Fort Collins police are reporting that a 39-year-old from Gill, Colorado, and a 57-year-old from Kersey, Colorado, were arrested for disorderly conduct. In a post on Facebook, authorities reported that the two people arrested were "prominently featured in bystander videos that captured a fight West of Nancy Gray Avenue."

Fort Collins police chief Jeff Swoboda said Monday he is sticking by his previous statement that both sides are at fault for the violence. After further investigation, Fort Collins police found that people on both sides were armed with guns, brass knuckles, pepper spray and fireworks, according to the Denver Post.

The Fort Collins Police Chief said this on Facebook:

Simply throwing on an ‘I support the police’ T-shirt, but then acting like a person with no regard for the law or safety of other people — that is not support, we do not want your support and we do not need your support.
